    The call quality isnt very good. Speaker sounds good. I tried other 920's at ATT and they all pretty much sound the same.

    Hope they fix it.

    I agree. I am not happy with the call quality either. So far that's the only thing I miss about my 3GS.

    Who the heck used their cell phones as a phone anymore? The 1990's called they want their technology back.

    j/k

    I honestly haven't noticed an issue people said I sound better on my Lumia 920 then I did on my 900 and I can actually use the speaker phone now.

    Not sure what to tell you here, bud.

    Every once in a while people would say they had a hard time hearing me on my Lumia 900, but I have had no such problems on the 920.

    i absolutely love the call quality of this phone.

    my previous phone was the iphone. both the lumia and iphone gets 2-3 bars at my house and the call quality on the lumia is excellent even with 1-2 bars. my iphone dropped calls left and right with same signal.

    Yeah call quality is excellent...better than the Samsung Focus easily. On par with or better than any cell phone I've ever had including the iPhone.

    Hmm..that doesn't sound good at all.. the 3GS was awful compared to my E71 at the time.. I really need to get one for testing, and return it if I don't like it.

    I have this same problem. It is very consistent and happens after 10 minutes into a call. It is so bad the other person cannot hear any words I say. I've had AT&T for many years and reception is great where I live so it doesn't make sense, but has been happening since the day I got the phone. They describe it as breaking up, too. As far as hearing the other person, it sounds great. I just can't carry out a conversation on the phone with someone more than 10 minutes because my side is too distorted. I can't seem to find others having this problem though so it may just be a few of the phones.

    I'm on AT&T in an area where you'll drop calls if you go into the wrong room of the house, but I have to say, this phone is, so far, a significant improvement as far as call quality over my iPhone 3GS. Not that the 3GS was horrible - just much more "what"-ing.

    I am having a similar problem. People can not hear me when I am speaking. They say I sound like i am in a tunnel or can not understand me. The sound quality coming back to me is great.

    So far I am very happy with the call quality. I had somebody tell me today I sounded like I was in a tunnel, and I noticed I was not holding the phone well. I turned so the mike end was oriented closer to my mouth and she said I then sounded fine.

    It seems like the earpiece on my 920 has gotten a lot worse since I got my 920... everyone sounds tinny and distorted now. I wonder if it's a physical issue with my earpiece. Sigh.

    Call quality is quite good on my 920 with AT&T. I had the Titan before the 920 and that phone had a lot of reception issues. No one could hear me.

    Did you position the earpiece correctly on your ear? I saw one reviewer mention that when he didn't do that, it sounded tinny.

    Call quality and reception are better than the iPhone 4, Note 1, HTC One X, Galaxy S3, and Note 2 I've had previously this year. Network is AT&T. I'm extremely pleased with this aspect of my 920.

    Wow. That's a lot of phones!

    To add to this the Lumia 920 has excellent call quality for me. Someone even told me that I sounded amazingly clear.
